Rikki obtained a BA in political science from Wright State University in Fairborn, Ohio. She is also a 2016 graduate of the Chamber Leadership Reno-Sparks program. Rikki has served on a variety of boards, Nevada State PTA, Great Basin Primary Care Association, Soroptimist International Truckee Meadows (President), and Making a Difference for Women Event (chair), as well as coaching girls softball and volunteering for local community agencies. Rikki grew up in Carlisle, Ohio, and transplanted to Reno in 2006. She and her son, Caleb and daughter, Madelyn are glad to call Reno their home. When Rikki is not working, parenting, or volunteering, she is running her favorite loop through downtown and midtown, enjoying on of the many great restaurants in town, or planning her next adventure with her beau, Matt.
